The 2013 SF Flower and Garden Show is only a memory, but my talk on cooking from the garden was well attended. Some of the recipes I mentioned are in Golden Gate Gardening, but not all, so I posted a few that are not on the day of the talk (March 24, 2013). Plans are under way for me to repeat the subject of the talk: How to Dine Gloriously from a Small Food Garden twice in the coming year.
On June 15th, from 3-4 PM I will repeat the talk on eating from your small garden at the Ortega Branch of the SF Public Library. It will be free and my books will be available after the talk for sale and signing.
I will be giving a 2 hour class on eating from a small garden on November 2 at the garden store Common Ground in Palo Alto. Details to follow soon.
On July 10, I have scheduled a talk at the new garden store Pollinate Farm & Garden, at 2727 Fruitvale Avenue, in Oakland. The talk will be on planning a fall and winter food garden and will be from 6:30 to 7:30 P.M., followed by a booksigning. Registration is $15.00. For more information, see pollinatefarm.com or call (510) 842-3125.
On Saturday, August 10th, from 10-11 A.M. I will give a free talk, Getting the Most From Your Small-Space Food Garden, at 109 Civic Drive in Hercules, CA. The location is a community garden. There will be books available for purchase and signing after the event. For more information, call (510) 245-2420.
On August 24th, from 10 to noon, I will be speaking at the UC Botanical Garden on some of what I learned while writing the book Wildly Successful Plants: Northern California. Following is a description of my talk: Others seek out the rarest plants; Pam has scouted old gardens to find treasures among historic Bay Area ornamentals, the ones that thrive with little or no care. She found many handsome, drought tolerant, mostly deer and snail resistant, plants we can still love in our new sustainable landscapes. Her presentation is partly horticultural history, partly an exploration of plant adaptability, and partly design inspiration for using these old plants, and their newer varieties, in new settings. Her images include maps to show plant origins. (Surprisingly, many are not from mediterranean climates.)
